Rayanna Brigade  a closed chapter,  says Eshwarappa

Senior BJP leader K S Eshwarappa has said that Sangolli Rayanna Brigade was now a closed chapter.

“I have distanced myself from the Brigade on the strict instructions from BJP national president Amit Shah. The office-bearers of the Brigade have consented to join BJP. Shah has promised suitable position for Brigade leaders in the party,” Eshwarappa told reporters here on Sunday.

He said that henceforth Dalits and backward classes would be organised under the banner of the OBC Morcha of the BJP.

Eshwarappa said that he would file a defamation case against Vinod, an advocate, who has lodged a complaint against him with the Enforcement Directorate, alleging benami assets. He accused Vinod of resorting to blackmailing tactics.

The state government has been enacting a drama on bringing an anti-superstition law, just to placate rationalists.

The Congress has not been extending cooperation for setting up of National Commission for Backward Classes, he alleged.
